Megan Frank
Northampton County Reporter

Megan Frank grew up in Philadelphia and graduated from Temple University. In 2010, she received the Temple University Legacy Award for excellence in reporting on diverse communities. During her time at PBS's WHYY in Philly, she reported for the station's flagship radio program "NewsWorks Tonight" and worked on NPR's shale gas reporting project "StateImpact Pennsylvania" as an investigative research aide. Most recently, she reported for stations in Pennsylvania's capital city, Harrisburg, and hosted an on-air segment that highlighted issues of the Digital Age. Her work in the series focused on exposing social media scams and fact-checked viral headlines surrounding the 2016 presidential campaign. In 2015, she acted a correspondent for Pope Francis' first U.S. trip, hitting the streets of Philadelphia for the three day visit with a laptop and mobile phone, tweeting out updates in real-time. Her print work has been featured by Philly.com's "Trend" and Temple University's "Fox Focus" magazine. Meg's Lehigh Valley ties include family, some of whom worked for Bethlehem Steel in the ‘90s just before the company ceased operations. In her spare time, she enjoys performing improv comedy, visiting children's hospitals dressed-up as her favorite superhero, Wonder Woman, and rooting for her hometown hockey teams -- the Philly Flyers and Lehigh Valley Phantoms.
